A female suicide bomber has attempted to shoot the Nazran police chief, but missed and injured another police officer and then blew herself up in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia, a local police spokesman said on Friday.
"A woman approached a group of police officers and fired a gun at the Nazran police chief, but instead shot another one, injuring him," the spokesman said.
He added that police officers opened return fire on the attacker and hit her. She then fell and an explosive device was detonated.
The spokesman said none of the police officers was killed in the attack.
